With water, flavors open up. They seem a bit muted though even without water. After the bottles been open a couple months, oxygen does it’s thing and makes this grain better, sweeter and more wine comes in. Yes, it’s young and a tad fiesty. But who doesn’t like that in a quality Irish whisky? It’s worth your time though; the quality is evident upon first nosing. It’s a huge step up from the usual blends that are so grain heavy, e.g. Tullamore dew and Jameson etc. No acetone here. Step into an intermediate grain spirit. It’s not Redbreast. But then again it’s not trying to be. This is a good quality grain. Go for it. 3 -only because it takes so long to open up. Otherwise it’s a 4.
At first I was thrown off, strong almost bournon finish, very heavy flavour that was hard to put a finger on. After letting the bottle sit I have hit that sweet spot and is it ever complex! Amazing depth, from nose to finish this is an amazing value at $65 CDN! Will definitely be buying another bottle to stash for winter nights in the flask.
Replaced the long gone previous bottle. A fine whiskey.
Smooth taste with a hint of wine in the background. The best Irish whiskey in this price range.
A lovely smooth tasting single grain boosted by the wine finish which adds so much more complexity, body and flavour.
